We have just moved into a new house over Christmas that is about 3 times the size of our old place. Needing some help with the girls' play area which is part of the open plan kitchen area. We definitely need some seating in there but am stuck on the layout. I'm thinking a modular sofa? Or maybe a 3 seater facing the wall and two occasional chairs or slipper chairs facing the sliding door? The laundry door is also the access to the garage, so we come in and out of there regularly.
At the moment the space is bland, boring and looks cluttered. There's no feature or focal point,.I like symmetry, but I feel like it'll be hard with that huge window off to the right of the wall. There's no art or photos up yet, as I want this house to have a different feel than the last. We have a lot of Indonesian furniture and Asian artifacts etc, but now I have fallen in love with the 'Hamptons' look. I want it light and bright and fresh and young.

I love these interlocking stools from Wisteria. Which is also where I found the great chair below.
On your large wall by your door, remember scale when you make selections for that wall. Without furniture in front of it, your wall decor should have a relationship with the wall itself. The mirrors below- from Williams Sonoma Home, are nice and large- I would use three of them.
They also add great texture to the room, along with the grasscloth wallpaper (top of the post) that I would put throughout.
I don't know exactly what you meant by "Hampton's style". That might mean something different in Australia... But I hope I wasn't too far off. What do you think of when you think "Hamptons?" I guess I picture a beautiful vacation home on the beach. What about you?
Thanks for writing in Susie! I can tell you when I think of Sydney, Australia, I think of Finding Nemo- but that is the mom in me.
